When the statistics for success are still grim (50 percent of marriages fail), we're asking: is marriage really worth the effort?
Whether you're married, divorced or considering either, do you have a story that made you think twice about tying the knot?
Ephron tells us that the stories of relationships ending are often as rich as the beginnings. She writes about her experiences over at The Huffington Post:
Divorce seems as if it will last forever, and then suddenly, one day, your children grow up, move out, and make lives for themselves, and except for an occasional flare, you have no contact at all with your ex-husband. The divorce has lasted way longer than the marriage, but finally it's over.
